You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz in Switzerland. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Basel.

Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Basel. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We advise a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Basel definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
